Q1: Hi, do I have to cut out the foam to make my Celestron SE8 fit? Does this case fit my tube assembly and mount or just my tube?
A: The foam in the Celestron Hard Case for NexStar 8SE does need to be cut to fit the optical tube. This case cannot hold the tube and the mount. It is designed for the optical tube only.
Q2: I have a NexStar 8i. Does the case hold the telescope and tripod? Will the scope fit with the GPS and finder still mounted?
A: you will need to remove the finder and GPS when putting it in the case and no the Tripod will not fit in the case either.
Q3: I no longer have the foam that came in the original CGE mount packaging - is there anyway to still use the case? Can Celestron provide this foam?
A: Generally it will not be a problem for you to get replacement foam from Celestron for your case. Just contact them via e-mail on the customer service section of their website. The other option would be to purchase some egg shell cushions and form them to fit the case yourself. If you have any other questions let us know we are happy to help.
